Great news from Parks Victoria at Mount Buffalo

Good afternoon
We are pleased to announce that additional sections of the Mt Buffalo National Park have been re-opened for visitors. Access into the park will now be right through to the Horn picnic area car park. This has enabled the following areas to be reopened to the public:

Horn Track
Macs Point Track
Long Plain Track
Mt McLeod
Og Gog and Magog
Eagle Point
Reservoir Road
There are areas that still have restricted access until we can undertake further assessments and rehabilitation works – please refer to the attached map. These areas are:

Rocky Creek Track beyond Macs Point
Dicksons Falls
South Buffalo
The Backwall
Mollison’s Galleries

Over the coming weeks staff will continue the process of assessing fire damaged areas to determine what work is required to the make the areas safe again for visitors, to plan and implement stabilisation works to protect fragile alpine ecosystems and to repair damaged infrastructure such as bridges, signs and drainage.

Cheers and have a great weekend,

Tom Carrie
Acting Ranger Team Leader, Mt Buffalo National Park
